Here are some images from a recent meeting of photographers in Deep Ellum. It was so much fun to do this meetup and be with other photographers that share the same passions. We met a lot of great people! This year is about Divine Connections and so far it has been amazing! Enjoy the pics and if you find yourself with a little time check out the new Deep Ellum! It has changed a lot since the Summer of last year! A lot! More restaurants and so much beautiful and fun art!
We started off at Armoury D. E. Restaurant for an early lunch. We took time to chat and get to know one another and then headed to the streets. This is our new friend David (pronounced Daveed). He is from Mexico originally and has been in Texas for about a year. He shared with us some pictures of foods that he has made, including Octopus. It appears he is quite the cook! Great guy!
This wall was so amazing to me! It was one of my favorites!
These next pictures highlight a vehicle that the owner who was kind enough to come out and show us. Great guy and he loved showing off this vehicle that originally belonged to his grandfather.
Now this wall got me in a little trouble! It is important to be aware of your surroundings no matter where you are! This wall was up in an area my husband would refer to as a boxed canyon. Little did I know, or even think about the fact, that I had walked up into an area that left me with nowhere to go should I be approached. I have since used that scenario to keep safe, especially when alone. Lesson learned!
This was a fun group of people! I asked them why they were dressed like that and they said "Raising Awareness." I of course inquired "Awareness of what?" "Awareness of Onsies" I was told! Hahahaha! Awesome!
This woman I found to be very interesting! I have shared her image recently as a single image. It just tells quite a story in itself. You, of course, must decide what that story is to you.
Last, but certainly not least, one of my favorite images of the day. This young man sat alone eating Cheerios and playing his harmonica. He was very friendly and even said "you can take my picture, if you want." I did...so I did! He was pretty good on that harmonica, too!
Street Photography...try it!
And...remember to be safe!
